The World's Highest Mountains

Peaks and Valleys is an impressive 3D tour of the Earth's tallest mountains and deepest canyons. This Esri Story Map takes you on a journey from the tip of Mount Everest to the world's lowest valleys, desert basins and inland seas.

As you scroll through Peaks and Valleys the map automatically flies around the world to show each continent's highest mountains in glorious 3D. If you want to examine one of the locations in more detail then you can zoom in or out on the map and use your right mouse button to pan around the 3D imagery.

Scrolling information windows provide details on each of the featured peaks and valleys on the map. You can also use the links at the top of the map to jump to the separate sections on each of the Earth's continents,

If you want to create a similar mapped tour of the world then the Story Map Cascade documentation is a good place to start.
